Do I not learn my lesson or just not give up?

Last Update: February 06, 2019

If you've been reading my posts, you know that I've been working on a very important project, for which I have put everything else on hold.

I have worked so hard on this project while still working my 'day-time job' and trying to balance family life that I drove myself to bed with temperatures of over 38º for three days straight.

I called these my forced days off.

Well, they were indeed forced, but not only by my physical inability to work...

I had finished the initial phase of my project and it was being tested.

The first test has finished and a few tweaks are required for a proper launch.

Now, I am still at, let's say 60% but I'm already obsessing again, and I don't seem to have learned my lesson.

I jumped straight into fixing what has to be fixed, and am already putting too much energy into it before I've even regained it.

But I can't stop myself, I'm obsessed about finishing and launching my 'baby'.

What do you think?

Should I take this easier or just run with it and let this obsession drive me to success?

Could I be just digging myself a deeper grave?

Who knows?

Should I be afraid? I'm not...

Luckily I can force myself to step back otherwise I would keep on going, but then all would get to stressed out. So I have a plan in place for the work and follow up if something happens then need to adjust the schedule. But not squeeze all in on the same day.
Have a great day

Be well and healthy friend! Your project will be a bigger success when you're healthy enough to enjoy it.

Thanks. I can be a bit intense about the health thing. My reasoning is I've wanted to stay healthy and as young as possible to hold out for an opportunity like this and I found it.

I understand, I'm a bit of a health freak myself with nutrition, exercise, etc, but for the first time in years I am letting go of some of my usual health habits (might not be a good idea).

Hi Francisco I really think that you need to slow down. Yes it's great to work hard on the project, but if your health is failing because of it, then absolutely nothing will get done. Your health is nothing to mess around with, I know because I have about 10 different health problems, from diabetes to heart problems. I really hope you slow down enough to smell the roses.

I intend to slow down, of course, Donnie, just wanted to get this finished first, but I do hear you though.

Thank you for your advice. I really apreciate it.

Thank you so much, Donnie. I'm flattered.

I shall do my best to not burn myself down and continue to provide as much value as possible.

Today, I believe you have provided me with more value than what I might have with all my posts so far...

All the best, Donnie!

I think obsession goes with the territory, Fran.

I hope your launch is a massive success. Let us know how it goes.
